Argentine water utility Aguas Cordobesas, serving the Córdoba provincial capital of the same name, has completed 80% of work under a contract to expand potable water service, deputy provincial water resources secretary, Luis Salamone, told BNamericas.
The province signed a contract to expand service to 48 neighborhoods with Aguas Cordobesas in September 2010.
"By the end of the year, the whole city of Córdoba will have a potable water distribution network, achieving the goals and objectives of the concession," Salamone said.
Funding for the 42mn-peso (US$10.1mn) initiative, which will expand potable water service to an additional 30,000 residents, came from the provincial government.
The full interview with Luis Salamone will be published in this week's Water & Waste Perspectives, for subscribers only.
